Literary Criticism

Term used for the method of interpreting the books of the New Testament, particularly the Gospels, by investigating not only the literary forms employed in their composition, but also the preliterary formation of these writings. This method will be considered here according to its objective, its nature, its classification of various types in the Gospels, and its value for exegesis; a historical, bibliographical synthesis of the studies connected with this method will then be given, followed by a brief account of the literary genres employed in the New Testament apart from the Gospels.
